Pro Cycling 2018 - the stage race season begins and Il Giro


#141

I said that I hadn’t been following it properly, not that I had been living under a rock.


#142

not sure if anyone else was watching at this point but during today’s stage brian smith and sean kelly had a silent argument, commentated by carlton kirby, because sean had been eating cake or something and had left crumbs all over the commentary box :hearts:


#143

Also called Haeno, Henyo


#144

yeah, that was good.

my god i love sean kelly so much.


#145

Always confuse Sean Kelly with Sean Yates tbh.


#146

Oof


#147

Not in any personality / history way, just whenever one gets mentioned I’m have an extra mental second to work out which one they mean. There’s a third person who I confuse with both of them in much the same way, but not sure his name is Sean (he’s just “Joe’s dad”)

“Theeeaaannn Keeeellllllyyy”


#149

Ha ha ha, Froome crashes going uphill! Then bumps into Bennet. It’s like a destruction derby or something.


#150

maybe if he looked where he was going once in a while…

2013 called, they want their chris froome jokes back


#151

Anyone else done a Le (The) AMGEN (Applied Molecular Genetics) Tour (Tour) De (Of) California fantasy team.

Made a mini-league: 92049329

Another bad day for the old froomester, losing time as yates solidifies first with a stage win and chaves moves up to 2nd. Pinot looking pretty decent too. But big tom still lurking well within reach.


#153

Good looking top 10 atm. Reckon Froome will step off soon and focus on France. The TT will be telling. Think Yates and Chaves will lose loads of time.


#154

Having watched today’s stage, I’ve some reservations over Yates’ performance


#155

That was quite some scenery on display today :heart_eyes:


#156

ooft. not sounding good for chaves at all today :grimacing:


#157

early days

COME ON SMILING ASSASSIN!!!


#158

2 mins down atm. Should get that back as it’s a relatively flat stage, but yeah, not what you want after a rest day.


#159

…or not, it would appear!


#160
